How to Safely Pick up a Senior After a Fall
Falls are a common occurrence for seniors, and, as many caregivers know, they can be very frightening. Once the initial shock wears off, family members are often left wondering how to get an aging loved one back on their feet. The answer to this question depends on a variety of factors, the most important being whether the person was injured in the fall. When in doubt, it’s always safest to call 911 for help.
